+1, my brother had a flex-fuel truck, but the closest place to get E-85 was a military base an hour away from where we live.Bob Lutz said:He argues a faster solution is E-85. There are already more than 6 million flex-fuel vehicles on the road right now in the U.S. alone. Those vehicles could be running on ethanol if it were more readily available, Lutz said.
I love that GM and the others are makeing the E85 vehicles. But they need to push the gas stations to sell it also. Stop letting the big oil tycoon companies dictate what is sold at the pump. Maybe the auto makers should build their own stations and our government should be putting the funding of these stations into the budget!
We could easily run 70-80 percent of our vehicles off of E85 or electric/alternative fuels.
Also it would bring the 91, 93 octane fuels for our high performance cars down in price because they would have to compete. GM is on the fast track to better their cars and trucks, now we need to get 100 percent backing from ALL parties involved to make the alternative fuels available.
I have also seen Bob Lutz try to push E85, BUT with a President that has ties to oil (and I voted for him twice) I can see why it hasn't had a major push from our government. Maybe next year our new President will make E85 a mandatory pump at the gas stations.I have seen Lutz talking about trying to get the goverment to require E85 pumps at stations that have over a certain amount of pumps(large stations), but I don't think he has had much luck with it.
I doubt that. The Pres doesn't have much to do with it if Congress shoots it down constantly.I have also seen Bob Lutz try to push E85, BUT with a President that has ties to oil (and I voted for him twice) I can see why it hasn't had a major push from our government.

Hillary has no freaking clue what she is talking about. 55 MPG??? Does her limo count as a car? Stupid B!TCH.In 2005 he pushed for E85, but in 2006....http://www.grist.org/news/muck/2006/07/26/fuel-econ/
